| From Draycott Gardens catalog, 2016: SAMON (Hiroshi Shimizu, 2009) 42" M. SAMON is unique, tall, and quite a vigorous grower. The color of the bud is a dark wine-red, but the opening flower reveals a color change to a very light background lightly veined red-violet with a yellow wash over the entire fall. The small standards are similar and the erect style arms coordinate nicely in a much darker wine color edged by a yellow border. A bright yellow signal is surrounded by a deep red-violet eyelash marking in a pointed pattern. The bright green foliage has a beautiful purple base. The name means “Ripple Marks”. $15.00
